Why I Started Writing? (And Never Plan to Stop!)

I started writing when I was seven years old. I still remember when my parents took me to the supermarket to do the weekly shopping, how fascinated I was by the office supplies section: Full of colorful notebooks and pens from all sizes and textures. Still today, I can spend hours just checking out agendas,…

Inspiración…¿Dónde Estas?

Para todos aquellos que nos dedicamos al arte de crear: Escritores, artistas de obras visuales, músicos, bloggers, diseñadores… es común adjudicar nuestro trabajo a esa musa, esa energía etérea, invisible que nos susurra de pronto al oído y produce en nosotros una necesidad de entrar en acción, de expresar el mensaje que hemos recibido… esa…

I’d rather be crazy….

and happy, than being normal and boring. That was the thought that crossed my mind while I passed by a bus stop and observed how people were looking at me in a sort of disbelief: It was snowing, minus two degrees, very early in the morning and this lady is running and smiling like crazy…

Declutter Your Mind…Declutter Your Life

I’m sitting right now in my favorite place in the living room: At my writing desk, gazing at the wonderful forest that happen to be right in front of my house. I took a small break to observe my surroundings: I like to see my living space tidy, clean, organized… nothing should be out of…

¿Vale la Pena Pagar el Precio de Ser Coherente?

Hoy quiero compartir una pequeña reflexión sobre una palabra que no escuchamos muy a menudo últimamente, pero que es muy poderosa cuando nos decidimos a aplicarla en nuestra vida: La coherencia. Tener coherencia en la vida, conlleva al acto de pensar, sentir, hablar y hacer lo que nos dicta nuestra guía interior, nuestro corazón. Es…

The Myth of Work-Life Balance

Ohh yes! come to me, work-life balance. The mantra we hear over and over again. Everybody that has corporate, industrious kind of job, knows that this is some sort of aspiring living style… a promised land of balance, prosperity and well-being. Where does this idea came from? Although it appears to be New Age, the…

My Last Day on Earth

Today I woke up as usual. After the morning rituals of washing my face and cleaning my teeth, I kept gazing at the window. It’s a new year. Another fresh morning. The snow was falling from the branch of a nearby tree. I kept gazing outside, at the whole spectacle; the sunrise appearing at 08:15hrs……

Un Regalo de Navidad para el Alma: La Bailarina de Auschwitz

La época Navideña nos regala una oportunidad única para reflexionar sobre nosotros mismos y la vida que hemos llevado hasta ahora. Esta Navidad será muy diferente a las que solíamos vivir apenas hace un año atrás; privados de la libertad de compartir estas festividades en compañía de la familia y los amigos en un ambiente…

Perfectionism vs. Striving for Excellence

In our society, we praise perfectionism. We think of being perfect as the highest aim: We must have a perfect body, a perfect intelligence. A perfect house, a perfect family and perfect experiences. We long for perfection, although we do not fully understand the forms. What does it mean to be perfect? Who or what…

Are You Feeling Overwhelmed? Go Back to Basics

Already immersed in the second week of November. Through my window, I see the trees slowly running out of leaves. Those precious colors of the autumn are falling apart. Old leaves fall from the trees and die, to become pure soil. It’s a beautiful and a sad scenario at the same time: To experience the…
